Nursing while on the go is never easy, but the Burlington, VT, International Airport aims to make breastfeeding and pumping a little easier with the installation of a Mamava lactation station, Today reports. The breastfeeding kiosk features easy-to-clean surfaces, a fold-down table, a power outlet, and space that can comfortably accommodate seating, a breast pump, luggage, and a stroller. Gene Richards, the airport's aviation director, says finding space for a place to make moms more comfortable was easy — it's in the former spot of an ATM and flat penny machine. And he expects the spot to be popular among nursing moms who travel and normally can't find a place to comfortably use a breast pump on a plane or on a short layover.
As Mamava cofounder Sascha Mayer confirms, when she traveled with her breast pump, "I'd end up using the pump in a public bathroom, but I know women who have had to use breast pumps in cars, storage closets, and some very unusual places when they travel."
